Step 2: Hem Sleeves
Step 3: Hem Collar
Step 4: Hem Waist
Step 5: Hem Front Sides(what Are These Called? Where Zippers Go) Add Piece of Cloth
-Hem right side once.
Photo 2: Fold a strip of cloth, sew shut on both sides, flip inside out(this will cover up your skin behind the buttons
Photo 3: Sew this piece onto the right side, you'll be hemming the right side for the second time while adding this piece. The piece should be long enough to cover where the buttons will be.
Step 6: Adding the Buttons
Photo 2: Knot finished. Follow these instructions: www.stellaceleste.com/htm/knots/buttonknot.htm Make as many buttons that you need. Be careful when tightening the buttons, if you are using tshirt material, it will tear if you pull to hard, be very gentle.
Photo 3: Measure out the spots for the buttons
Photo 4 & 5: Buttons sewn on.
Step 7: Add Loops
Photo 2: Looks added. I used the excess material from the knots for this, luckily they were long enough to all be even.
